Children experiencing traumas, such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, serious accidents, or natural disasters, may develop severe health problems.
This study will examine the short and long-term effects of trauma-focused cognitive-behavioural therapy on children exposed to serious trauma, and moderating factors of treatment outcome.
The study will use a random control design, and will be implemented in regular clinical practice in Norway.
More knowledge within this field is important for practitioners as well as policy makers in planning interventions and therapy for children and their caregivers.
